At ASAP Semiconductor, we keep the supply chain process flowing smoothly for our Aerospace, Aviation, Industrial, Military and Defense clients. As an ISO 9001:2008 certified/ASA-100 accredited distributor, we are known for our comprehensive inventory of both current and obsolete merchandise. Through our proprietary website Just NSN-Parts, customers in the Aerospace, Aviation, Industrial, Military and Defense industries are able to find a comprehensive list of parts we supply and their assigned National Stock Numbers.
To standardize the procurement process, the U.S. Department of Defense put into place a system that uniquely and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, termed the National Stock Number (NSN), comprises of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 following identifying subcategories:
For example, an existing wire rope assembly we supply at ASAP Semiconductor has a 13-digit NSN of 4010-00-001-9947. The FSCG is represented by 4010, and the NIIN by 000019947.
Continuing on, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying subcategories:
In the above wire rope assembly example, the FSG is represented by 40, and the FSC by 10.
In the above roller wire rope assembly example, the NCB is represented by 00 (USA).
One FSG we at ASAP Semiconductor stock is FSG 40 - Rope, Cable, Chain, and Fittings. Manufacturers for FSG 40 that we carry include:
